Makers Of the H1N1 Vaccination Refuse To Take It.

OK, this H1N1 Flu, or as I call it "Hinnie", is getting weirder by the hour.
Even the ones making the Vaccines refuse to take it! WTH is up with that!?
What is even worse, they tell their friends and family NOT to take it as well..

Even scientists who helped develop the vaccine say THEY ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT AND URGE THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILY NOT TO TAKE IT EITHER, says Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist and RT contributor.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that vets have found traces of the H1N1 flu virus in birds. It was detected in turkeys at farms in Chile.

So far H1N1 flu has proved to be very contagious, but not more deadly than the common flu.
However, scientists fear it may combine with avian flu, which is currently very dangerous but hard to pass on.

A Case of the IRS and the Fed Again Working to Cover Each Others Butt

For the life of me, I cannot figure out what Las Vegas businessman Robert Kahre has done to deserve a federal criminal indictment and now conviction. From what I can tell, Kahre is the victim of a brutal, heavy-handed Justice Department that is acting at the behest of the IRS and possibly even officials of the Federal Reserve.

On August 15th, Kahre, 48, was found guilty in a federal trial facing a 57-count indictment. Now that he’s been convicted on all counts, he could end up spending the rest of his life in jail.

From what I can tell, the feds are going after Kahre for two main reasons, both of which appear to me to be ludicrous abuses of prosecutorial power. First, the feds are upset that Kahre paid his workers with gold and silver coins. Second, they’re upset that he treated his workers as independent contractors rather than as salaried employees.

Let’s look at the coin allegation.

Federal officials issue gold coins and silver coins. The coins are denominated in dollars. For example, the silver coin is a one-dollar silver coin. The gold coins are issued in various denominations, the largest being the 50-dollar American Eagle.

The U.S. government has declared that these coins are legal tender at their face value. In other words, suppose a person wants to buy a concert ticket that costs fifty dollars. He can take his American Eagle gold coin and tender it to the ticket seller. Under the law, the ticket seller must accept the gold coin in payment of the ticket.

Now, most every intelligent person knows that a buyer would never do that, at least not today. Why not? Because in the marketplace that one-ounce gold coin is worth about 1,000 dollars in Federal Reserve paper money, which is also considered legal tender.

Thus, the ticket buyer would be better off selling his gold coin for 1,000 dollars in paper money, paying 50 dollars in paper money to the ticket seller, and pocketing the other 950 dollars in paper money.

Nonetheless, the law is the law. If the buyer wishes to use his gold and silver coins at face value, he is perfectly within his legal rights to do so.

So, here’s what Kahre did. He offered his workers a rate of pay based on the face value of gold and silver coins. For example, suppose Kahre and a worker had agreed on annual pay of 50,000 dollars in paper money. Kahre then says to the employee, “Look, instead of paying you 50,000 dollars a year, I’ll pay you 2,500 dollars a year, payable in 50 American Eagle gold coins”

The worker says, “Fine.” Why would the worker do that? Because he’s just as well off as if he had accepted the 50,000 dollars in paper money because he can sell the coins in the marketplace for 50,000 dollars in paper money.

But there are some major differences for the worker. For one thing, the worker’s annual income is 2,500 dollars rather than 50,000 dollars. That places him under the threshold that requires him to file an income tax return. For obvious reasons, that would not sit well with the IRS.

Second, I’m no expert in tax law but it would seem to me that while the worker would have to pay capital gains tax when he sells the coins, he could defer that tax by saving the coins over a long period of time rather than selling them.

So, what have Kahre and the workers done wrong? Or to be more precise, what have they done that is illegal? If federal officials are stupid enough to make gold coins and silver coins legal tender, then what’s wrong with Americans’ using such coins as legal tender?

If Kahre had been living sometime between 1787 and the early part of the 20th century, he wouldn’t have been convicted of income-tax evasion. The reason? Our American ancestors understood that an income tax and an IRS were antithetical to a free society. That’s why the United States was income-tax free for more than a century.

Then the progressive income tax came to America, along with all the socialist and interventionist schemes it funds and the myriad of economic crimes and tax crimes by which government officials are able to keep businessmen in line.

But it’s not just the IRS that was upset with Kahre. Lurking behind his prosecution is another federal agency, one that is just as powerful and destructive, if not more so, than the IRS — the Federal Reserve.

Let me tell you what I think their “crime” is: They’ve embarrassed U.S. officials by exposing what the Federal Reserve has done to people’s money, which is a likely reason that Federal Reserve officials, along with the IRS, are pushing this criminal prosecution.

What many Americans don’t realize is that the United States was founded on a monetary system of gold coins and silver coins. Paper money was prohibited, both at the state and federal level because our American ancestors understood that government officials throughout history had used paper money to plunder and loot the citizenry through inflation.

The gold coin/silver coin standard came to a formal end when Franklin Roosevelt nationalized gold and made it a federal crime for Americans to own gold. That act opened up the floodgates to the massive inflation of paper money that Americans have experienced ever since.

The enormous extent of the monetary debasement that had taken place since the 1930s became clear once gold ownership was re-legalized in the 1970s. How? Because Americans could easily compare the face value of gold coins issued by the mint to the price in paper money that the coins bring in the marketplace.

Suppose a person owes one hundred dollars in income taxes to the IRS. Let’s say he has inherited 5 gold coins issued by the U.S. mint, each one having a face value of $20. Let’s assume that each gold coin weighs one ounce and that the person is able to sell the coin in the marketplace for one thousand paper dollars. That means that the person’s 5 gold coins have a value of 5 thousand paper dollars.

Let’s assume that the person sends in his five $20 gold coins to the IRS, in payment of his one-hundred dollar tax bill. Will the IRS issue him a refund, representing the difference between the fair market value of the coins and the amount of the tax owed, i.e., 4,900 dollar bills?

Absolutely not. The IRS will say that the coins are legal tender at face value. They will keep the coins, sell them, and pocket the difference.

But as Kahre has demonstrated, the government’s representation that the gold coins are legal tender is false and fraudulent.

Kahre and his workers struck a deal in which he agreed to pay his workers, say, 5 gold coins. That meant that their income was one hundred dollars. But the IRS and the federal prosecutors cried, “No! For purposes of the IRS, the workers are required to report the free-market value of the coins, not their face value.”

In other words, those gold coins and silver coins are not legal tender after all. It’s all just a charade, one that Kahre had the audacity to expose.

Why is a $20 gold coin worth one thousand paper dollars instead of twenty paper dollars?

That’s where the Federal Reserve comes into the picture.

At one time, prior to the creation of the Federal Reserve, a $20 gold coin did trade for 20 paper dollars. In fact, the real money was the gold coin and the twenty-dollar bill was nothing more than a promise to pay the gold coin.

Then the U.S. government called into existence the Federal Reserve System, nationalized and confiscated people’s gold, and decreed a paper-money standard. Over the decades, it printed gobs and gobs of paper money to fund its ever-increasing welfare-warfare programs.

Thus, the reason that a twenty-dollar gold coin today exchanges in the marketplace for one-thousand paper dollars, instead of twenty paper dollars, is because the Federal Reserve has been flooding the marketplace, decade after decade, with paper money to fund the government’s operations.

But the feds don’t like people figuring that out because it might cause them to begin wondering whether the Federal Reserve should be abolished for having inflicted so much damage on the American people through monetary debasement. Kahre exposed in a very real way what the Federal Reserve has done to our money.

In other words, a fifty-dollar gold coin does not trade for 50 paper dollars. It trades for 1000 paper dollars. That’s because the government officials, decade after decade, have inflated the paper money supply to finance their ever-growing government projects.

So, what Kahre has done is bring people’s attention to that phenomenon. That’s his real crime. That’s why they’re going after him.

The Constitution Project

Do you believe the Constitution is the rule of law? Do you believe in the original intent of our founding fathers? Do you want to reform Congress? I’m not talking about reforming a Democratic Congress, but Congress.

If your answer is yes, we have to work together to make this happen. The goal in it’s entirety is to make all three branches of government respect and abide by the rule of law, know as the Constitution of the United States of America.

The most egregious of offenses against the Constitution is from Congress, so the focus will begin with the Legislative branch. It requires you to do some homework, because you have to know what you are talking about.

1. “We The People” need to read the Constitution. It is about four thousand, four hundred and forty (4440) words and will take less than an evening to do. Some may have to digest and research to understand what these wise men meant. Please try to understand it. Here are links to an online Constitution and a pocket Constitution you can get free from The Heritage Foundation.

Our main concern will be Article 1, Section 8 and the 10th Amendment.

2. Next, “We The People” must write to each of our Senators and our Representative to tell them that we have read the Constitution and we know what the “Powers of Congress” are and that we want them to abide by the “Powers of Congress” granted by the Constitution, and that anything not listed are reserved for the States and the people as addressed in the 10th Amendment. If they do not abide by the Constitution, they will be voted out of office.

If they do not know the “Powers of Congress”, a copy is attached, and they might spend some time reading and learning their duties. Most of these politicians know the Constitution, so this is really a poke at them.

This is to be sent to ALL of your Senators and Representative, Democratic and Republican. That would be a total of three letters, three emails, three faxes, and three phone calls. I would not suggest to send to politicians out of state, as they will look at addresses and usually only address letters from there district. That is not to say that if you have an address in another state, not to use it.

3. Below is a letter to send to your Reps and Senators. It is an example.

A. Please use the Representatives and Senators name.

B. This is an example letter. It will be more effective if you rewrite it in your own words.

C. This letter will be more effective if you send it United States Postal Service, and hand written. At least send it USPS if you don’t hand write it. I know some of you will not send a snail mail. Please do, it’s the most effective method. Please write the letter in your own words, PLEASE.

D. Send them an email. Please send a snail mail and an email, if possible. Also send a fax. Call them, but to read the letter will be too much for an intern to take time for.

D. Example letter:

[-start Letter-]

Dear [Senator or Representative] [your Senators or Representatives name],

“We the People” are tired of what is going on in Washington D.C. “We the People” would like to see you do your real job in Congress, and not make up jobs to keep yourselves busy and waste our tax money, not to mention making unconstitutional law.

Your job in Congress is established in the Constitution under Article 1, Section 8. There are only 18 items listed. Just in case you didn’t know, or have forgotten they will be listed at the end of this letter.

Where is it in the Constitution that Health Care, and Cap and Trade are mentioned? For that matter, where is Social Security, global-warming research, welfare, mass transit, food stamps, minimum wage, Medicaid, Medicare, and unemployment insurance?

You can point to “general welfare” in Article 1, Section 8, to account for your unlimited power you think you possess, but if you knew your history of the United States and the Constitution, you would know that “general welfare” did not mean the welfare of the people. Here is the 1828 edition of Noah Webster’s American Dictionary of the English Language, and how the word “welfare” was defined 40 years after it was written in the Constitution:

WEL´FARE, n. [well and fare, a good going; G. wohlfahrt; D. welvaard; Sw. valfart; Dan. velf√¶rd.]
1. Exemption from misfortune, sickness, calamity or evil; the enjoyment of health and the common blessings of life; prosperity; happiness; applied to persons.
2. Exemption from any unusual evil or calamity; the enjoyment of peace and prosperity, or the ordinary blessings of society and civil government; applies to states.

Welfare did not have the meaning then as it does today. In the Constitution the word “welfare” is used in the context of states. The “welfare of the United States” does not mean the welfare of individuals, people, or citizens.

In the words of James Madison:
"Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government."

Here are a few words from our founding fathers on “general welfare” to set you straight:

“If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one….” — James Madison

“Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.” –Thomas Jefferson

“Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” — James Madison

“I can find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution, and I do not believe that the power and duty of the General Government ought to be extended to the relief of individual suffering which is in no manner properly related to the public service or benefit.” — President Grover Cleveland

“I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.” — James Madison

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them." - Thomas Jefferson

It is important that you know your history as well as the Constitution.

Please abide by these rules set forth by our Constitution of these Unites States of America or face removal from office next election.

Your Constituent,
[Your name]

P. S.
Here is your list of powers authorized to you by the Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, and some more words from our founding fathers.

1. The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

2. To borrow money on the credit of the United States;

3. To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

4. To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;

5. To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

6. To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;

7. To establish Post Offices and Post Roads;

8. To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;

9. To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;

10. To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offenses against the Law of Nations;

11. To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

12. To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

13. To provide and maintain a Navy;

14. To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

15. To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

16. To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

17. To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings; And

18. To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

Under the Tenth Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

More words from our founding fathers:

“We still find the greedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry, and grasping at the spoil of the multitude. Invention is continually exercised to furnish new pretenses for revenue and taxation. It watches prosperity as its prey and permits none to escape without a tribute.” — Thomas Paine

“Those who would give up essential Liberty to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” — Ben Franklin

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.” — James Madison

“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.’ To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power not longer susceptible of any definition. — Thomas Jefferson

“The greatest [calamity] which could befall [us would be] submission to a government of unlimited powers.” — Thomas Jefferson

“The powers of the federal government are enumerated; it can only operate in certain cases; it has legislative powers on defined and limited objects, beyond which it cannot extend its jurisdiction.” — James Madison

Please take the liberty to make changes if you can make this idea work better because this idea is not about me, but about the United States and our Constitution.

I was asked how can we get our Representative and Senators to abide by the Constitution. This is one way. Have your Tea Parties, and Town Hall meetings. We have to keep after these politicians and let them know we know what the law is. The Constitution is the law and we will make them abide by it. If not, we will vote them out, whether they are Democratic or Republican. It is up to us to save our Constitution and these United States.

Pain and Prayer

Ever had something come to you in the night that you just had to put to paper? I literally dreamed this last night...going to lay the "blame" on my daughter-in-law Heidi. Thanks for the inspiration kid.

The word pain shows up early in the Bible, in chapter 3 of the book of Genesis:

To the woman he said, “I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.” To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat of it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.

I’ve often wondered why God instituted pain in the lives of people. Personally I believe it was and still is His way of protecting us. For instance if we touch something hot the initial pain causes us to remove our hands from the heat source. Imagine if we did not feel any pain. Our hand will never detract from the flame and will just burn us completely.

Pain allows us to realize something is not right and needs to be changed. Without pain we become lepers. Leprosy is a disease that affects the nerves. When our nerves cannot feel pain it fails to send messages to our brain. Our clueless brain is unable to inform the rest of the body how to respond properly. The result is we accidentally hurt/lose our toes and fingers.

Pain therefore signals the brain that triggers our body’s immune system to set up our body’s defenses. This is just as true for our spiritual lives. Pain signals our soul which then triggers our spirits to start praying. Prayer functions much like our immune system - it causes all of God's forces to start working in defense of our lives.

As the people of God we need to be sensitive to the pain that affects not just ourselves but the people around us. When we become sensitive to pain we are able to promptly respond with prayer. We need to be careful not to drown pain from our lives, lest we become spiritual lepers.

Mr. Obama Promised Us The Same Health Care As Congress Has

On the campaign trail, President Obama promised us that we would have access to the same kind of health coverage that Congress has. Here is an excerpt from a speech given by then candidate Obama on September 20, 2008 at Bethune-Cookman University:

“Change means keeping the promise of affordable, accessible health care for every single American. Under my plan, if you have health insurance, nothing changes for you, except that my plan will lower your health care costs. If you don’t, you’ll be able to get the same kind of coverage that members of Congress give themselves.” Full transcript here.

But with the new health care bill exactly the opposite of this is happening. First of all the plans Congress has available to them are second to none. Second, there is a provision in the bill to exempt members of congress from the regulations in the bill. What is more under this bill if you don’t have a “qualified plan” you will be fined for several thousand dollars.

The other problem in the quote, “nothing changes for you”…that is, unless the plan you currently have doesn’t qualify on the government’s list of what is acceptable. If it doesn’t qualify you will be fined and given a plan of their choice. Ouch!

If socialized medicine is good enough to force on American taxpayers, it’s good enough for Congress. I like this House resolution from Rep. John Fleming requiring lawmakers in Washington to enroll in any government-run health plan it decides to foist on the rest of us.

Read and sign the petition supporting House Resolution 615 here:

Over the past few weeks, members of Congress and the American people have come to know the details of the Administration’s proposed health care plan. Call it whatever you like, this proposal is nothing more than government-run health care. As a physician, I am amazed at the number of bureaucrats in this House who are quick to claim a government-run health care plan is the reform this country needs. In response to this, I have offered a resolution that will offer members of Congress an opportunity to put their money where their mouth is, and urge their colleagues who vote for legislation creating a government-run health care plan to lead by example and enroll themselves in the same public plan.

Under the current draft of the Democrat healthcare legislation, members of Congress are curiously exempt from the government-run health care option, keeping their existing health plans and services on Capitol Hill. If Members of Congress believe so strongly that government-run health care is the best solution for hard working American families, I think it only fitting that Americans see them lead the way. Public servants should always be accountable and responsible for what they are advocating, and I challenge the American people to demand this from their representatives.

If you agree with me, sign our online petition below and together we will work to ensure that any plan that is good enough is for American families is good enough for every member of Congress.

Astroturf Doctors In TownHall Meeting?

You may have seen Wednesday's video of Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) speaking on her cell phone while a cancer survivor spoke to her about health care reform. Well now comes news that the pro-Obamacare voices in the crowd were not entirely legitimate. A primary care physician identified as Dr. Roxana Meyer stood up and praised the President’s health care plan for overhauling a broken system. Meyer said: “I don’t know what there is in the bill that creates such panic.” The Congresswoman asked the crowd to give her a round of applause for being a doctor, hugged her and then asked “How long have you been practicing?” to which “Dr.” Meyer answered “Four years,” which was followed by more applause and a gushing grin on the face of “Dr.” Meyer. The problem? Roxana Meyer is not a doctor, but rather an Obama campaign delegate.

In fact, Roxana Meyer was sitting in the audience with a friend who also worked for the Obama campaign and was famously photographed hanging a Che Guevara revolutionary flag above her official Obama campaign office desk. The Houston Chronicle, which reported on the townhall and highlighted the exchange, knew that Ms. Meyer was an Obama delegate but was unaware she was not a doctor. The Chronicle did not report her campaign background, but has since updated their website to reflect she is not a physician. In responding to inquiries, Roxana Meyer says she possessed “spontaneity” in her deception and she thought it would “help her credibility.” Yes, she gave all Obamacare supporters loads of credibility today. We hope that the President’s chorus will denounce her actions as loudly as they have protested regular parents, citizens, students who have driven themselves to their representative’s townhalls to ask serious questions about the “reform” of one sixth of the U.S. economy.

To me this calls into attention the "love fest" that was Mr Obama's townhall meeting in Portsmouth.
It would have been far more interesting, and no doubt far more enlightening, if the audience had been first-come, first-served. At least then you might have had the seeds for a lively discussion on this desert of an issue.
Of course there was that portly gent who tried to press Obama on the way Medicaid played around with his Lipitor script for two years. The president thanked him for a great question and then proceeded to caress him in a cocoon of cool rhetoric.

There was the poignant moment, perfect for the network news, when Obama called on Julia, a young girl from Malden, who was about 75 or 80 years away from the nearest “death panel.” She asked the president why the signs outside the gym were so mean. She was referring to the “Obamunism” “Socialism Sucks! Leave my Medicare Alone!” "Give Us The Same Health Care As Congress" placards, or my favorite, “I WILL NOT DISCUSS MY END OF LIFE OPTIONS WITH ANYONE!”

Mr. Obama ate up Julia’s tender inquiry pretty much the same way A-Rod treated that pitch in the 15th inning of last weekend’s game with the Sox. He hit it out of the park.

President Obama should have returned to Portsmouth yesterday more like Candidate Obama. The machinery of the White House makes spontaneity impossible. This was a ticketed affair made up of those who cared enough to apply online.

The Coming Devaluation Of The Dollar or Can You Say Screwed By The Federal Reserve

I've fought with myself for the last week about posting this. I have found it hard to believe and to tell you the truth MORE than a little frightening. I have written and talked with friends in the Government and Foreign Service and they have confirmed that they are being instructed to Transfer as many US dollars as they can into local currency. I have picked the brains of more fellow bloggers and those that follow these things to see if I was following leads that were just scare tactics and they also confirmed that their sources were saying the same.

I'm just going to post this from Q Wealth Report from 1-8-09...

"“In the years leading up to mid-2007 keen observers noted dangerous leverage in the US debt markets and some predicted that the bubble would pop. Predictions like this were contrarian while the market was rising, and they were ridiculed. But then when the bubble did pop, those same contrarians became nearly household names as network TV invited them on to explain their predictions.”

So begins a lengthy and informative article by blogger FOFOA, in which he claims that the coming devaluation of the dollar will be sprung on us without warning. If you have time, I recommend you read it

Your editor is in partial agreement with FOFOA. Indeed, I would say the devaluation of the dollar is already well underway. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people are currently living in a world of illusion… just this week, against all odds, the stock market rose again. When people see a rise in the nominal value of their investments, they believe they are making money. But they are wrong. Few take in that the cost of living is rising disproportionately higher… so they are actually losing. This is the fundamental strategy behind what I call the stealth devaluation of the dollar. The purchasing power of the dollar has fallen drastically since the Second World War, with a notable increase in the velocity of the fall in the last couple of years.

Another informed and respected commentator on the collapse of the dollar is John Rubino, who recently interviewed yours truly for an article on offshore banking and asset protection. In recent comments he refers to some news passed on by veteran newsletter writers Harry Schultz and Bob Chapman, that verges on what I would call a conspiracy theory…. or does it? You decide! The story goes like this:

“Some US embassies worldwide are being advised to purchase massive amounts of local currencies; enough to last them a year. Some embassies are being sent enormous amounts of US cash to purchase currencies from those govts, quietly. But not £’s. Inside the State Dept there is a sense of sadness & foreboding that ‘something’ is about to happen, unknown re a date-just that within 180 days, but could be 120-150 days.”

Bob quotes another source that “Panasonic has told their people to be back in Japan by Sept 09.”

Harry Schultz’s remarkable take on the situation:

“My HSL suspicion is that the elite plan another FDR style “bank holiday” of indefinite length, perhaps very soon, to let the insiders sort-out the bank mess which is getting more out of their control every day. Insiders want/need to impose new bank rules. Widespread nationalization could result, already under way. It could also lead to a formal US$ devaluation, as FDR did by revaluing gold (& then confiscating it). But devalue against what? The euro? Doubtful. Gold? Maybe. Or vs. the IMF basket of currencies (which seems more likely)-& much in the news recently.

Any kind of bank holiday will push the US$ lower, which may be a bonus benefit to their ongoing scenario of letting the $ fall. Such a fall would get the devaluation they want without having to declare it. In sum, the insiders want more bank & system control, fewer banks & a lower US$. A bank holiday would suit all their needs.”

So there is the question. Can we expect a sudden dollar devaluation, complete with suspension of markets and a so-called ‘bank holiday’? Or will we see the stealth devaluation of the dollar continue to accelerate?

My bet is on the latter. Why would politicians and those in power risk the wrath of the people by devaluing the dollar so explicitly from one day to the next, when they have successfully got away so long with devaluing the dollar on the quiet with few people noticing. But of course I may be wrong, and the situation may be even more out of control than I think.

Either way, I’m not sitting waiting for it to happen, and you shouldn’t either! If you are properly prepared, such a collapse would be a huge profit opportunity. But you would not be able to rely on usual market mechanisms… we have to consider that the stock markets and financial system might be completely suspended. It happened in the aftermath of 9/11, but it hasn’t yet happened during this global financial crisis. Never say never!

My advice is that markets are a nice convenient way of speculating play money for short term gains, but every serious investor needs to keep wealth outside the financial system too. That may be in your own business (if it is resilient) or it may be in real estate (people will always need places to live) or it may be by stashing gold bullion in an offshore safe deposit box."

Main line news has said nothing, I hope that this is just another false flag, but I really don't believe it is. Pack away some extra cash at home if you can especially in forms OTHER than dollars.

And Now For Something From Right Field, So To Speak

According to The Hollywood Reporter, MGM is planning a NEW RED DAWN MOVIE! That begs the question, who will be the new invaders? It is being reported by those that have seen scripts that it will be the Red Chinese, who knocks off America in the first 20 pages, and gets help from the Russians later in the movie. The cause of the invasion? Oil, of course. There are hints that America is kinda to blame, too. In today’s PC environment, that’s not too much of a surprise.

First though, a little about myself and Red Dawn. I've met a lot of people who have told me they have a quirky little movie from their childhood (that most of the time I have never heard of) that greatly influenced their lives. In my case, it was Red Dawn, the Cold War, Reagan-era movie about the Soviets and company invading the American Homeland, only to be fought off by a band of high schoolers led by Patrick Swayze.

In my case of course, Red Dawn is anything but quirky. It's an in-your-face movie about what could happen to America if the Left got its way in the argument about guns and butter.

I have always been very patriotic and grateful about the United States. In 1984, when Red Dawn hit movie theaters with a vengeance, the US and the Soviet Union were at the height of the Cold War. Mr. Reagan was forcing the issue and determined to see the Soviet Union fall. It was frustrating to me to see all the Liberals decry the "improbable" scenario and message of the movie. What, the United States is a "given" - it's stupid to even entertain the thought about its demise?! Far from it.

The Soviet Union is gone, or is it? McCain sees the KGB in the eyes of Putin. There's talk about Russian nuclear bombers returning to Cuba. There's talk of an alliance between Russia and Venezuela. But that's just talk. There are many new, real threats to the United States - EMP and economic collapse, bank holidays ( a la FDR ), gas shortages, Islamic terrorism, mass illegal immigration and China to name a few. I worry a lot for the United States. So many Americans take our security for granted, when in fact there are now so many ways the American Dream could end almost overnight. If I can have just one public-service mission in life, it is to remind Americans about the fragility of our times and that their standing up for, and reclaiming their Rights is our saving grace.

With that being said, let's get to the question about who will invade America in the new Red Dawn movie. My picks if the unofficial info above should prove untrue:

1. If it's a remake in the old mold, but in current times, the Russians are still available as the bad guys. Here's the scenario in the first Red Dawn as told at the beginning of the movie:

"Soviet Union suffers worst wheat harvest in 55 years... Labor and food riots in Poland. Soviet troops invade... Cuba and Nicaragua reach troop strength goals of 500,000. El Salvador and Honduras fall... Greens Party gains control of West German Parliament. Demands withdrawal of nuclear weapons from European soil... Mexico plunged into revolution... NATO dissolves. United States stands alone."

Some of this is still relevant - withdrawal of nukes, food shortages, etc. Throw in a few new/old things like gasoline shortages, the Russian/Venezuela alliance (plus a few other Left-leaning S. American countries), and the Colombianization of Mexico and you have yourself a new Red Dawn.

2. America's new real enemy is supposedly the coming-of-age Chinese, the new human-rights abusers with a penchant for new military hardware (designed to defeat American military hardware) and long-range plans to reclaim Taiwan by whatever means necessary. A nuclear first-strike by China on America could ultimately be followed by millions of Chinese invading what's left of American high schools.

3. Al Qaeda: Wow, that would be great to see some American high schoolers kicking Al Qaeda's butt! However, I just don't see an Islamic confederacy making it to the United States for an invasion anytime soon.

4. The European Union, led by a UN resolution condemning America for some "future transgression," invades America to teach us a lesson about the right to bear arms, nuclear weapons, the death penalty and other "non-European" things.

5. Balkanization: Have an EMP attack knock out all electronics in America, or a gasoline stoppage that shuts down the American economy, and watch how the United States "balkanizes" in the breadth of a week! In this scenario, the bad guys are all the minorities in America (including millions of illegals already here), fighting against each other and the "majority" for remaining resources. Politically incorrect, but very scary because such a scenario could actually happen.

6. Communist Mexico, with a little help from their Russian, Chinese, Cuban and Venezuelan friends, invades America to reclaim Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. Search "Aztlan" on the Internet, or ask any Border Patrol agent, and you'll know what I'm talking about. In fact, Mexico already has about 10 million "sleeper-agents" in the United States.

7. Fictional enemy. I hope the screenwriters don't wuss out and give us a fictional enemy from Maldoviakia, San Sebastilono or something stupid like that. Ultimately, to recapture the zeitgeist of the first movie, the threat needs to be a real and present threat.

I Am NOT A Shill

In an oped in USA Today titled "Un-American' attacks can't derail health care debate," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer attack those who've been raucously protesting health care reform at town hall meetings.

"These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views --- but of the facts themselves," they write. "drowning out opposing views is simply un-american. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades."

Pelosi and Hoyer say
“an ugly campaign is underway not merely to misrepresent the health insurance reform legislation, but to disrupt public meetings and prevent members of Congress and constituents from conducting a civil dialogue. These tactics have included hanging in effigy one Democratic member of Congress in Maryland and protesters holding a sign displaying a tombstone with the name of another congressman in Texas, where protesters also shouted ‘Just say no!”
drowning out those who wanted to hold a substantive discussion.

Senators and Congressmen have been caught off guard and very surprised as they face angry voters and constituents at Town Hall meetings across America. For some reason, the American public, particularly the moderate and conservative majority, seem to be tired of their opinions and viewpoints being ignored.

I feel the need to state VERY clearly today that I never have been nor ever intend to be a "shill" for ANY of the political parties in this nation of ours.

I have felt politically disfranchised since the early 1990's and have been trying to make a difference ever since.

For Ms. Pelosi and Mr Hoyer to imply that myself or any others are un-American in our attempts to voice our opinions IMHO is to disrespect all those that have done so before in the founding of our nation.

As a direct descendant of one who gave his very life at this nations founding, crying out against those things he felt repressive and against his rights and freedoms, I tell you Ms. Pelosi and Mr. Hoyer that I am personally offended and I will continue to speak out.

How long have people in America's heartland felt that their concerns no longer matter to elected officials. We are angry at the massive debt increase under the current bailouts and the Generational Theft Act. They are angry at bills, including Cap and Trade, and now it appears, a nationalized health care bill, that are being rammed through Washington before anyone has a chance to read the bills.

As was called attention to in a town hall meeting that Mr. Hoyer spoke at, The President took 6 months to pick out a dog for his kids but The Congress has tried to force HR 3200 on us in 3-4 weeks.

We see the same mistakes taking place over and over, and now we see a repeat of those mistakes in a Universal Health Insurance system being rushed through.

Instead of putting our fears to rest by explaining exactly what's in the bill and what it will cost, the American public has been scoffed at and told we couldn't possibly understand such a complicated measure.

Taken aback by the anger of those who elected them, instead of listening to voters, Democrats and their hired gun mouthpieces in the media have trumped a series of lies deflecting the outrage and claiming it to be manufactured by Republicans and organized by conservative groups.

Of course, the most ridiculous claim has been that we are doing this to "shut down free speech." Ridiculous because it has largely been the voices ignored for too long that are now speaking out. Voices ignored first by the Republicans during the last 8 years and now by the Democrats.

Of course, the mainstream media is in the pocket of the Dems. The New York Times recently ran an article titled "Health Debate Turns Hostile at Town Hall Meetings," where they continue the bogus claim of "protesters being organized by conservative lobbying groups." No such complaints came from the Times under the 8 years of verbal assaults by Democrats and liberals who organized under such groups as, the Daily Kos, and, now renamed to ""

In reality, the left is now organizing disruptions and busing protesters complete with professionally produced material into Town Hall meetings to counter conservatives and to, in effect, shut them up. This happened in Denver, Colorado recently at an appearance of Nancy Pelosi. It also occurred in St. Louis where angry voters showed up and were blocked out while Union supporters were snuck into a side door. Outside, SEIU union thugs attacked and beat a black man selling "Don't tread on Me" flags, sending him to the hospital. In Tampa, Florida, union thugs stacked another Town Hall meeting, pushing and shoving people and closing doors on constituents, preventing them from even hearing what their elected officials had to say.

News reporters have broadcast some of these violent instances, but make no mention of the fact that it is Union thugs committing the violence, leaving viewers, readers and listeners to assume that it is conservatives perpetrating the violence.

All across the nation, marching orders have been given. Community organizers have issued the call and professional protesters are starting to show up to block opposition to health care reform.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D.-NY) says to "stick with what we're doing and don't let them throw you off course." I take that to mean that our elected officials should ignore the wishes of the voters and conduct business as usual in Washington

We, the People, Are Coming

The following letter is rapidly circulating around the country. Americans everywhere identify with this 53-year -old woman. She has given us a voice. (Her letter was read on the Glenn Beck show.) Once you read this, you will want to forward it to all of your friends...

GLENN BECK: I got a letter from a woman in Arizona . She writes an open letter to our nation's leadership:

I'm a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life. Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in Washington represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me. There must be someone. Please tell me who you are . Please stand up and tell me that you are there and that you're willing to fight for our Constitution as it was written. Please stand up now. You might ask yourself what my views and issues are that I would horribly feel so disenfranchised by both major political parties. What kind of nut job am I? Will you please tell me?
Well, these are briefly my views and issues for which I seek representation:

1. Illegal immigration. I want you to stop coddling illegal immigrants and secure our borders. Close the underground tunnels. Stop the violence and the trafficking in drugs and people. No amnesty, not again. Been there, done that, no resolution. P.S., I'm not a racist. This isn't to be confused with legal immigration.

2. The TARP bill, I want it repealed and I want no further funding supplied to it. We told you no, but you did it anyway. I want the remaining unfunded 95% repealed. Freeze, repeal.

3. Czars, I want the circumvention of our checks and balances stopped immediately. Fire the czars. No more czars. Government officials answer to the process, not to the president. Stop trampling on our Constitution and honor it.

4. Cap and trade. The debate on global warming is not over. There is more to say.

5. Universal healthcare. I will not be rushed into another expensive decision. Don't you dare try to pass this in the middle of the night and then go on break. Slow down!

6. Growing government control. I want states rights and sovereignty fully restored. I want less government in my life, not more. Shrink it down. Mind your own business. You have enough to take care of with your real obligations. Why don't you start there.

7. ACORN. I do not want ACORN and its affiliates in charge of our 2010 census. I want them investigated. I also do not want mandatory escrow fees contributed to them every time on every real estate deal that closes. Stop the funding to ACORN and its affiliates pending impartial audits and investigations. I do not trust them with taking the census over with our taxpayer money. I don't trust them with our taxpayer money. Face up to the allegations against them and get it resolved before taxpayers get any more involved with them. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, hello. Stop protecting your political buddies. You work for us, the people. Investigate.

8. Redistribution of wealth. No, no, no. I work for my money. It is mine. I have always worked for people with more money than I have because they gave me jobs. That is the only redistribution of wealth that I will support. I never got a job from a poor person. Why do you want me to hate my employers? Why -- what do you have against shareholders making a profit?

9. Charitable contributions. Although I never got a job from a poor person, I have helped many in need. Charity belongs in our local communities, where we know our needs best and can use our local talent and our local resources. Butt out, please. We want to do it ourselves.

10. Corporate bailouts. Knock it off. Sink or swim like the rest of us. If there are hard times ahead, we'll be better off just getting into it and letting the strong survive. Quick and painful. Have you ever ripped off a Band-Aid? We will pull together. Great things happen in America under great hardship. Give us the chance to innovate. We cannot disappoint you more than you have disappointed us.

11. Transparency and accountability. How about it? No, really, how about it? Let's have it. Let's say we give the buzzwords a rest and have some straight honest talk. Please try -- please stop manipulating and trying to appease me with clever wording. I am not the idiot you obviously take me for. Stop sneaking around and meeting in back rooms making deals with your friends. It will only be a prelude to your criminal investigation. Stop hiding things from me.

12. Unprecedented quick spending. Stop it now.Take a breath. Listen to the people. Let's just slow down and get some input from some non-politicians on the subject. Stop making everything an emergency. Stop speed reading our bills into law. I am not an activist. I am not a community organizer. Nor am I a terrorist, a militant or a violent person. I am a parent and a grandparent. I work. I'm busy. I'm busy. I am busy, and I am tired. I thought we elected competent people to take care of the business of government so that we could work, raise our families, pay our bills, have a little recreation, complain about taxes, endure our hardships, pursue our personal goals, cut our lawn, wash our cars on the weekends and be responsible contributing members of society and teach our children to be the same all while living in the home of the free and land of the brave.

I entrusted you with upholding the Constitution. I believed in the checks and balances to keep from getting far off course. What happened? You are very far off course. Do you really think I find humor in the hiring of a speed reader to unintelligently ramble all through a bill that you signed into law without knowing what it contained? I do not. It is a mockery of the responsibility I have entrusted to you. It is a slap in the face. I am not laughing at your arrogance. Why is it that I feel as if you would not trust me to make a single decision about my own life and how I would live it but you should expect that I should trust you with the debt that you have laid on all of us and our children. We did not want the TARP bill. We said no. We would repeal it if we could. I am sure that we still cannot. There is such urgency and recklessness in all of the recent spending.

From my perspective, it seems that all of you have gone insane. I also know that I am far from alone in these feelings. Do you honestly feel that your current pursuits have merit to patriotic Americans? We want it to stop. We want to put the brakes on everything that is being rushed by us and forced upon us. We want our voice back. You have forced us to put our lives on hold to straighten out the mess that you are making. We have to give up our vacations, our time spent with our children, any relaxation time we may have had and money we cannot afford to spend on you to bring our concerns to Washington . Our president often knows all the right buzzword is unsustainable. Well, no kidding. How many tens of thousands of dollars did the focus group cost to come up with that word? We don't want your overpriced words. Stop treating us like we're morons.

We want all of you to stop focusing on your reelection and do the job we want done, not the job you want done or the job your party wants done. You work for us and at this rate I guarantee you not for long because we are coming. We will be heard and we will be represented. You think we're so busy with our lives that we will never come for you? We are the formerly silent majority, all of us who quietly work , pay taxes, obey the law, vote, save money, keep our noses to the grindstone and we are now looking up at you. You have awakened us, the patriotic spirit so strong and so powerful that it had been sleeping too long. You have pushed us too far. Our numbers are great. They may surprise you. For every one of us who will be there, there will be hundreds more that could not come. Unlike you, we have their trust. We will represent them honestly, rest assured.. They will be at the polls on voting day to usher you out of office. We have canceled vacations. We will use our last few dollars saved. We will find the representation among us and a grassroots campaign will flourish. We didn't ask for this fight. But the gloves are coming off. We do not come in violence, but we are angry. You will represent us or you will be replaced with someone who will. There are candidates among us that will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes that you have made of our constitution.

Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian. Understand this. We don't care. Political parties are meaningless to us. Patriotic Americans are willing to do right by us and our Constitution and that is all that matters to us now. We are going to fire all of you who abuse power and seek more. It is not your power. It is ours and we want it back.. We entrusted you with it and you abused it. You are dishonorable. You are dishonest. As Americans we are ashamed of you. You have brought shame to us. If you are not representing the wants and needs of your constituency loudly and consistently, in spite of the objections of your party, you will be fired. Did you hear? We no longer care about your political parties. You need to be loyal to us, not to them. Because we will get you fired and they will not save you. If you do or can represent me, my issues, my views, please stand up. Make your identity known. You need to make some noise about it. Speak up. I need to know who you are. If you do not speak up, you will be herded out with the rest of the sheep and we will replace the whole damn congress if need be one by one. We are coming. Are we coming for you? Who do you represent? What do you represent? Listen. Because we are coming. We the people are coming.

Well...If I Wasn't On That List Before...

Yes, Obama really said this:

'We also want to start rewarding doctors for quality, not just the quantity of care that they provide. Instead of rewarding them for how many procedures they perform or how many tests they order, we’ll bundle payments so providers aren’t paid for every treatment they offer to a patient with a chronic condition like diabetes, but instead are paid for how are they managing that disease overall."

Make no mistake, this is not about health care. It’s about absolute power. It’s about playing God.

Imagine a 78-year old man with heart disease who goes in for quadruple bypass surgery. The surgery was a success. He thinks so. His doctor thinks so. His family thinks so.

But Obama doesn’t think so.

Why would a successful procedure be unsuccessful under the Obama health care plan? Well, for starters, this man is 78 years old. By democrat standards that’s way too old for this type of procedure unless you’re Ted Kennedy and you need another lobotomy. This man could be in the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s or suffer from some other chronic disease that will eventually take his life. In a democrat’s mind there is no reason to keep an already compromised man on the government rolls longer than necessary. (Government rolls are strictly for the voluntarily unemployed.) And, lastly, this man might be a republican. ‘Nuff said.

In Obama Care, successful disease management (and rewards) will be inextricably linked to the value Obama and crew place on various segments of society.

I’ll say it again: This isn’t about health care. This is about devaluing those whom the powers that be deem as being undesirable.

If you oppose Obama-care in the form of emails, web postings, writings, or even in casual conversation, the White House wants you to be reported. They've even created a special email address for the rat ship of sea-going snitches to use. Straight from the WHITEHOUSE.GOV website:

"There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to"

The good news is that this type of thing reflects desperation and a sense that the White House is beginning to lose the health care debate. The Linda Douglass video in particular was a BIG LOSER. When you consider her complete inability to debunk a short clip of Obama saying he's a proponent of single payer being followed up by the release of the entire 2003 clip from Obama actually bolstering the charge that he wants single payer, isn't a crackdown on dissent the next logical step?

The not-so-good news is that this tactic seems to fit right in with the Civilian National Security Force Obama told everyone he wanted back on July 2nd, 2008...

This calls for a post with the obligatory Barack Obama Truth Squad as well....

If allowed to run its course, it will be about eugenics.

Too conspiracy theory for you? Really? We have a president who voted repeatedly against life saving measures for babies who survive abortions. This same president has appointed John-”compulsory abortions and sterilization for population control”-Holdren as his science czar. Combined these with Pelosi’s brain wave that birth control will help the economy and you’ve got the perfect pre-Nazi party mix.

History is repeating…again.

For your edification, a little primer on eugenics and the Nazi party.

Second Amendment Facts That Those In Power Would Like To Ignore, Part 2

The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution is a Natural Right which means it is a personal right to defend oneself, the oldest right known to mankind, traced as far back historically as 872 A.D. As to the Roman Civil Judiciary which via a convenient European fomented Civil War and presidential assassination this legal take over by those foreign scoundrels has taken illegal residence in this nation since 1868, July 28th to be exact..They continue to try to put their own interpretations into it by twisting and violating the 9th Amendment, and most members of Congress, with some notable exceptions do not know the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, and they fail miserably when it comes to our States individual Constitutions as well..

Other than to recite the articles and clauses when necessary to put on their big show these Lawyers fail the test of Constitutional savvy. I think and many Constitutionalists believe our nations leaders who are supposed to be our nations guardians should be required five years minimum of Constitutional schooling, The populace should have been required to be schooled in this legal information as well, since after all it is a contract to maintain their own Liberty, but unfortunately in the last 100 years it is safe to say the majority of these law students received one semester of Constitutional instruction at best and for that matter our Universities do not teach the proper definitions of the Document themselves. It is a sad state of affairs and it shows..And the people this famous document defends are ignorant to it’s meaning, and take for granted strangers will guard it for them, these people are in for a huge let down soon..

The late Senator Sam Ervin was the one who could confirm our list of personal rights, which are the rights government can never take from us through any Congressional or Court actions, period..Now days our populace waits around for these bumbling bunch of fools and their Court’s to decide the definitions of Rights, which were decided and defined many decades ago, and we only need to read them ourselves to learn the truth..

Mankind is in error when they decide to trust strangers to decipher Scripture and law for them, instead of staying abreast of those documents themselves, this was not the case in the days of the 1800s, people had time to read then, and stay sharp in these lessons of Liberty, law, and natural Rights from God..

Today we have trained intellectuals who think their superior in intelligence compared to those people of history, Great books and works of ancient letters of the 1700s-1800s, and even early 1900s do not bare this out to be true.. How then do the most educated of our two centuries lose their own nation and stare in bewilderment and confusion as to the cause… History may even show scholars in the future that these people in latter day America surrendered their guns to a small group of liars and con men via fear..

It seems highly unlikely to me that these brave modern day intellectuals of the 1940’s to present have been aware of the Dick Act of 1902, aka The Militia Act of 1903. Perhaps even as early as 1934 when we had an attack on the Second Amendment as well. Regardless of that attempt to disarm Americans in direct violation of the Dick Act then and today because this Act still stands tall, right beside the Second Amendment.

Not only is Government and Congress along with the Courts in violation of the Dick Act, as well they violate The 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and Article 1, Section 9, Part 3 of the U.S. Constitution itself..

The federal government is one of delegated powers and not original powers, and the primary powers of congress are found in Article 1, Section 8, Clauses 1-18. Interfering with personal rights, among them the right to keep and bear arms is not found in the sole or delegated powers of the federal government, and incidentally, nor in the Constitution of the several states, local, county, and any other legislative bodies are bound by these restraints.

The secondary powers of the Senate are meant to be housekeeping powers and nowhere in the Constitution is the Congress authorized to tamper with our personal unalienable rights as Sovereign De-Jure Nationals which their in servitude to, and neither are they to tamper with the Second Amendment Right to keep and bare arms..nor the right to be well supplied in that endeavor.

Of course these Congressmen and Senators think we are weak minded out here in the nation and are unaware of those fraudulent contracts they have helped the banking institutions trick us into them the upper hand over us and our rights, by natural rights nullification upon signature..I beg to differ because any educated citizen knows those contracts are based on fraud..

And contracts based on fraud fail in the court of justice as well as their attempts to re-define our first 10 Amendments fail in that court of justice as well..we just need a few brave good men to stand and insist those courts listen and stop accepting the bribe..After all once Liberty falls, where will these rich Judges spend their wealth ? These men in black robes will learn about treachery themselves one fine day…They have been used.

Those first 10 Amendments are not privileges, They are Rights, and the Second Amendment Right is there to safeguard them all. Against Courts, Congressmen, Senators, gone bad..This second Amendment is not addressed to States, it is Addressed to WE THE PEOPLE, the sovereigns residing in the sovereign states;

“The Right of the PEOPLE…” The same language is used in the 4th Amendment. In fact the entire Bill of Rights is addressed to the people.. People means Citizen and citizen means people, That is you and me reader, citizens of the States, not the federal government and the 10th Amendment makes the distinction between the people and the federal government very clearly;

” The powers not delegated to the United States (singular) by the Constitution are reserved to the States (Plural) respectively or to the People.”

One of the less famous Founders of this effort towards Freedom, Liberty, and unalienable Rights was George Tucker, veteran of the battle for independence ( I say battle because the war for Independence did not end, and is far from over). George was a professor of law at William and Mary, a judge of the Virginia Court, and a champion of the entrenched Second Amendment Rights of the People to keep and bear arms, Mr. Tucker makes the issue crystal clear in his work, ” Blackstone’s Commentaries”;

” This may be considered the palladium of liberty—The right ( and again, note it is a right and not a privilege) of self defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of the rulers to keep this right within its narrowest limits possible…A well regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free state, the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall not be abridged. ” In those days well regulated meant well supplied. See the 1828 Websters Dictionary for clarification of that fact…

Did you notice this says, first the ” right of the PEOPLE ” and does not restrict that right to the militia only, and in any case, the militia is the whole PEOPLE..An attack on the Second Amendment is an attack on the whole Constitution. Clauses and amendments cannot be isolated like these communist gun grabbers time and again keep attempting to do, Villains have tried this to many times, and every single time We the people have stood up and clarified these true and factual definitions historically, We the people had better sit up and take note.

In 1809 John Randolph said ;

” The PEOPLE (not the states, not the local government not the federal government) who will consent to remain unarmed while arms are put in the hands of a standing army governed by martial law are ripe for a master.”

Randolph makes it crystal clear that our right, the PEOPLES right is vested in We the PEOPLE and we are responsible to keep this right, not courts, not Congress, not foolish University Trained by the master holding his license, attorneys who would sell us out either deliberately or by error. What we have today, are courts, local boards, local and county governments and their officers who are attempting to insert clauses of their own making between the 1st and 9th Amendments, and this is very much the case with gun-grabbers who try to twist and squeeze the Constitution to fit their predilections, forbidden mind you by the 9th Amendment.

There are those that believe that 14th amendment attempted to rob the states of property rights and other States rights, but the 14th did not try to abridge the right of citizens to keep and bear arms, nor does it say that guns come under interstate commerce.

The great John Marshall, our third Chief Justice of the Supreme Court must be turning in his grave at the antics of local boards, counties, States, and federal government attempts to abridge the Right of We the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms, and of the attempts of those trying to use the 14th amendment to nullify the original 10 Amendments of our authority over them ! Our public servants have turned on us !

It is time we stood up and told them we have had enough. We must tell them of their errors. Nor can they continue with these illegal restrictions whatever imposed on We the People any longer, as well the types of arms and munitions is ours to decide and to keep and bear. Please, could you point out in the Constitution those restraints as to the numbers and types of guns We People may possess are written, or expressly implied ? That would be quite and achievement, as it simply is not there !

Patrick Henry's "Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death" The Entire Speech

I am posting this in the hopes that those who have never read it will take the time and realize that once again our nation is at a cusp that may call on us to make sacrifices to keep our Liberty once more.

"Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death"

"No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope that it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen, if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.

This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty towards the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation?

For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth -- to know the worst and to provide for it. I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House?

Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation -- the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motives for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies?

No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer on the subject? Nothing.

We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves longer.

Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament.

Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope.

If we wish to be free -- if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending -- if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!

They tell us, sir, that we are weak -- unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us.

The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable -- and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come!

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, "Peace! Peace!" -- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!"

Second Amendment Facts That Those In Power Would Like To Ignore

“The Congress of the United States possesses no power to regulate or interfere with domestic concerns of any state, it belongs to them to establish any rule respecting the rights of property, nor will the Constitution permit any prohibition of arms to the people, or peaceful assemblies by them for whatever purposes, and in any number they may see the occasion”.

And of course we know during our lifetimes the Congress is not adhering to this rule of the Constitution, The 14th Amendment snake in the grass has created their illusion of power. As if this rule above were not enough, the framers listed below their deepest convictions on the subject of arms, people, and law by adding their voices to the archives of history to support the right of the people to bear arms at any place and in any manner without constraint. (See the Origin of the Second Amendment; A Documentary history of the Bill of Rights 1787-1792-David E. Young-1991)

Samuel Evans;

” The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States of America from keeping and bearing arms.”

Zacharia Johnson;

” The people are not to be deprived of their weapons. They are to be left in full possession of them…”

Fisher Ames;

” The rights of conscience, of bearing arms, of changing governments are declared to be inherent in the people.”

Thomas Cooley hits on this second amendment well, he was a giant of a man when it came to the Constitution. He wrote a great book known as “The General Principles of Constitutional Law in America, I happen to own a copy myself, his work was released in 1880. Mr. Cooley makes it very clear that the right to keep and bear arms is a right above the reach of all government, local, county, state, and federal, and that right cannot be infringed upon under any color of or pretext whatsoever. And furthermore I say myself including a foreign power allowed into our nation to subvert our heritage under the guise of environment repair.

Judge Cooley made the Second Amendment a matter of very serious and grave concern and he warned that no government agency at whatever level can pass ex post facto laws or bills of attainder, in fact all communist gun control ” laws “ fall under these prohibitions. In fact not one code of law is valid in this nation, they are over powered by our founding documents, and the test of proper Constitutional instruction and research bares this truth out in full.

The damaging fraudulent pretexts of many villains in our American history do not hold water, The worst of them was Thomas J. Dodd D-CT who used our tax dollars against us when he had the Library of Congress translate the 30 year old Nazi German ” gun control act” law into English. Only four months after this request Congress passed the Gun Control Act of 1968- GCA-1968, Dodd being the principle author and sponsor, and this act is identical to Hitlers gun control of Germany in the 1930s..

Many other villains against liberty have attacked the Second Amendment prior to Dodd’s time and post Dodd era, like Lautenberg, Schumer, Feinstein, Boxer, Lieberman, Brady, Kennedy, Even McCain, Ginsburg, and Obama..OBAMA HAS A VOTING RECORD in Illinois which proves his stance on the second, and he is attempting to damage the right to reload our own ammunition right now, and this man is just waiting the opportunity to start banning all types of guns….All and more have attempted to restrict the rights of law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms, but my friends those lies fall flat in the face of Storeys pronouncement;

” The Second Amendment like most other provisions of the Constitution has a history. It was adopted with some modifications from the English Bill of Rights of 1688 where it stood as a protest against arbitrary action of the overturned dynasty in disarming the people, a pledge of the new ruler that this tyrannical action should cease. The right is GENERAL (that is not subject to restrictions-me) and the meaning of the provision undoubtedly is, that the people from whom the militia must be taken, shall have the right to keep and bear arms, and they need no permission or regulation of law for that purpose.”

The Dick Act is a prohibition upon government making laws that attempt to abridge the right to keep and bear arms and to carry them everywhere.

John Marshall, the third Chief Justice of the Supreme Court ruled that a power sought (in this instance gun control) has to be in the Constitution already, or it has to be expressly implied or in pursuance of a power already stated in the Constitution, or the power cannot be taken and the bill falls to the ground. This ruling alone, makes all gun control laws anywhere in the United States of America null and void, as there is no reference anywhere in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights that would allow government at any level, local, county, state, or federal to abridge the rights of the people to bear arms at all times, or to bear arms anywhere. (Excepting in the case of unjustified violence to innocents of or by a mad man which our common laws covered as harm had been done to one man by another and justice then could be served via jury).

There is no such thing as “federal gun law”. This fact comes through loud and clear if a detailed in-depth study of the Annals of Congress, Congressional Globes, and Congressional Records is undertaken. The Congressional Record, House 28, 1904 pages 3898–3906, quoting Judge Cooley’s Constitutional Limitations;

” In the American system the power to establish the ordinary regulations of the police has been left with the states and cannot be taken away from them, neither wholly or in part, and exercised under legislation. Neither can the national government or any of its departments or officers assume any supervision of the police regulations of the states.”

” This power to make municipal (state) regulations for the restraint and punishment of crime, for the health and preservation of health and morals of her citizens has never been surrendered by the states nor restrained by the Constitution.”

This landmark case is a formidable restraint upon the Federal Government and tells it that it cannot pass laws or attempt to enforce laws in the states effecting the Tenth Amendment, and it is expressly implied that the Federal Government and its officers cannot interfere with the Second Amendment right of citizens to keep and bear arms at any place and at any time. The Federal Government and its agents are in violation of the Supreme law of this nation, our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, which should be a separate Document from the Federal Constitution, and they are in violation of the Declaration of Independence.

Not only do they misconstrue the Second Amendment, they ignore all the powers delegated to the federal government which are found in article 1, section 8, Clauses 1–8, and as for the matters of gun control in any way shape or form and under any disguise whatever are not in these delegated powers, the Second Amendment cannot be overridden by the president, the house and the senate, not now, not at anytime. They can only continue to break the law and violate their oaths of office.

Senator Sam Ervin, cited in the Congressional Record, Senate, pages 3297-3304;

” I would paraphrase that remark I made before by saying that when laws like these are passed by members of the Congress, they are grossly subservient to pressure groups which demand passage of such laws as the price of their support for these members of Congress.”

As you can see the sell out and misspending of tax funds is severe in Washington D.C. by this comment Mr. Ervin made. Of course we all know it in our hearts, this betrayal knows no depth, no bounds..It is treason, and the foul fruits of this deception are yet to be suffered onto the American people..

Now American gun owners have suffered many court trials as of late, The Heller being the most recent Supreme Court Case, which has damaged the Second Amendment,(Read it for yourselves it is plain to see in the wording of that decision.) And then we have the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit (Nordyke v. King) attempting to call this Second Amendment a collective privilege under the ” protection” of the 14th amendment, you should be realizing this is all a fraud, a dog and pony show to deceive Americans even more.. I say no, I am not tricked by this treachery.

Nor can judges read their predilections into the Constitution, as was attempted by Justice McReynolds. the Ninth Amendment was written to prevent this type of conduct by judges. Another amendment being suffocated by the 14th amendment..never ratified mind you, I challenge any and all legal minds to produce the original ratification documents of July, 28, 1868, and see that three fourths of the states in fact did not correctly ratify the 14th Amendment..Just as the 16th and 17th Amendments fail the test of proper ratification themselves, and this writer has those very documents in evidence as proof…

In a Court of law and integrity the truth then allowed to be shown in it’s entirety would prove the 14th Amendment for what it is, and unratified fraud..And that fraud cannot protect my rights or yours reader, and it never has, prior to this fraud 14th amendment Americans Citizens were living under the protections of their Sovereign States, as sovereign national de-jure citizens, Free men. The 14th Amendment changed this, it made all persons born in the United States (excluding the Indian nations) citizens of the united states first and citizens of a state secondly. This reversed the original American citizenship. Freedom was stolen with this coup d’ etat in the very first sentence of the 1868 14th Amendment…

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. “

Of course the 14th goes on to portray federal protections of citizens rights from the states doing citizens unjust legal harm, this is a lie because the states Constitutions mirrored the federal Constitution prior to 1792 when the states insisted the federal Constitution and those famous 10 Amendments be added to the federal document, to protect states Sovereignty and citizens Sovereignty from the federal government…protection usurped by the 1868 – 14th Amendment..

We continually see the federal government abuse Americans rights across this nation, ignoring the 10th amendment and running roughshod over citizens in the states with tyrannical insanity,( See the wolf re-introduction program, and notice states citizens did not vote on that subject) someone please explain to me how the 14th incorporating the 2nd Amendment is going to protect us gun owners…The fact is it will not do so.. We do not have NATURAL RIGHTS under the 14th Amendment ! CIVIL RIGHTS are granted to us as PRIVILEGE ! Privilege’s can be taken away…Private property can be stolen at will by the feds under the powers granted THEM by the 1868 - 14th Amendment for a federal dictator.

Guns in fact are private property and as such, guns were specifically excluded from the Interstate Commerce measure by the Founding Fathers.

Third Chief Justice John Marshall wrote ;

“When the U.S. Constitution is silent on any proposed power under the delegated powers of Congress ( Article 1, Section 8, C1. 1-18) and the proposed power is incidental to another power already in the Constitution, then it is a prohibition (inhibition) of that power and it may not be taken or used.”

This ruins all gun control lies, laws, deceptions, of any credibility, makes them, no forces them to be null and void, ultra-vires and not anything more than wasted paper and ink period.

As well the fifth Amendment to the Bill of Rights, article 5, comes into the prohibition of gun control laws;

“……nor be deprived of life and PROPERTY, ” and as we have already stated, guns are PRIVATE PROPERTY….

Professor Joyce J. Malcolm ;

” The Second Amendment was meant to accomplish two distinct goals, each perceived crucial as to the maintenance of liberty. First, it was meant to guarantee an individual’s right to have arms for self defense and self preservation. Such an individual right was a legacy of the English Bill of Rights ( broadened in scope in America from the English antecedent.) The second clause concerning the militia was not amended to limit ownership of arms to the militia…but rather to express the preference for a militia over a standing army.” From her book- To Keep and Bear Arms.

Standing military under the government control has nothing to do with the Second Amendment, In fact the founders warned against a standing army, the militia is YOU, and ME…Only we can defend liberty, or give it up..

The American Revolutionary Battle for Liberty and Justice was no war, and it is still ongoing today, it never ended…Unsuppressed History proves my case…Remember, Kings, Tyrants, Oligarch’s, Priests, Princes and thieves all lie and suppress truth to fit their own ends, not ours…not humanity’s..

This Federal government has shown it can not manage our money, our lands, our borders, our wild animals, how then can it manage my personal security ? The fact is it cannot and never intends to do so…The theft of a nation by foreign interests continues under the auspices of 1868 – 14th Amendment “Liberty “…..
